I was sent a copy of GOOD BITE ™ WEEKNIGHT MEALS for review. This is a fun cookbook with recipes from food bloggers. I love the various sections in the book. The well stocked pantry is a great list of must haves so you can make dinnertime versatile and interesting everynight.
GOOD BITE ™ WEEKNIGHT MEALS also includes secret ingredients of bloggers, techniques and tips, and planning and prep ideas that save time and work in the kitchen.
The photography in GOOD BITE ™ WEEKNIGHT MEALS is beautiful. There are pics of many of the recipes. Also included are questions and answers from well known food bloggers.

Spending an hour on a perfectly planned meal can be interesting and satisfying, but on most weeknights it’s unrealistic, if not impossible. Enter the team at Good Bite—one of the fastest growing cooking websites in the country. Good Bite features the web’s most influential food bloggers, on video, sharing their easy recipes for great tasting meals. GOOD BITE ™ WEEKNIGHT MEALS (Wiley Hardcover; September 26, 2011; $29.99) compiles 140 recipes for quick and delicious family meals from the site's most popular contributors, with gorgeous full-color photography from Matt Armendariz of MattBites.com.
The recipes in GOOD BITE ™ WEEKNIGHT MEALS were developed by busy people in their home kitchens, and put to the test against real-life situations: long workdays, conflicting schedules, and even picky eaters. Most call for between 5-10 ingredients, and few require more than 15-30 minutes of hands-on cooking time.
Here are just a few of the stunningly simple yet downright delicious recipes you’ll find inside GOOD BITE ™ WEEKNIGHT MEALS:
· Inside-Out Chicken Pot Pie from Jenny Flake at Picky Palate makes a labor intensive dish quick and easy by using ready to eat rotisserie chicken and puff pastry sheets.
· Grilled Lamp Chop Lollipops with Spinach & Tomato Couscous Salad from Laura’s Best Recipes is so elegant it’s hard to believe it comes together in under 30 minutes
· Not just for the winter this slow cooker Blueberry Pulled Pork from Rachel Rappaport at Coconut & Lime keeps the kitchen cool and rewards cooks with rich and bright flavors thanks to in-season ingredients
· Parmesan-Crusted Fish with Lemon-Dill Sauce from Catherine McCord at Weelicious will convert even the most fish-resistant kids into fish fanatics with its cheesy crust and delicious dipping sauce
Recipes are divided into six chapters centered on the main ingredient (i.e. “Chicken & Turkey”) plus additional chapters focus on “Soups & Stews” and “Sides”. Many recipes include Make it Easy Tips—quick tricks from the bloggers that they employ when making the dish at home. Other key features include suggested substitutions for less common ingredients, as well as serving suggestions for how to round out a main dish into a complete meal.
GOOD BITE ™ WEEKNIGHT MEALS brings the best of the blogosphere into the home kitchen, with inspiration and cooking wisdom to turn any dinner into a meal to remember.
